Question for Election Rules Wonks

Could Rubio exit the GOP and run as an independent? Trump would most likely be the GOP nominee, but if Rubio faced Trump as an independent, theoretically at least, Rubio would outpoll Trump significantly. That would still leave the GOP bitterly...

Chris Christie's a 400-pound Sack of Shit

This is what cc said before it started looking like the trumpet would win the nomination: Always beware of the candidate for public office who has the quick and easy answer to a complicated problem. ... I just don't think that [Trump] is suited to...

Now It Makes Sense

I think I've figured out what's going on. Trump is not a republican at all. He's a democrat impersonating a republican so he can make sure hillbillary gets elected. His devoted trumpettes aren't really republicans, but democrats masquerading as gop...

Thought for Sunday

With all our modern technology, there is one piece of equipment that no office could function without today: the waste basket.

Trumpet Leads the PMS Party

It seems the Tea Party has morphed into the PMS Party. This group put up a good fight for conservative principles, but they were unable to make temporary political compromises that were in their best long-term interest. Having shot themselves in the...

Thought for Friday

I really like how things are shaping up. We're going to have an incompetent, corrupt, career politician who is under FBI investigation and possible indictment vs an angry white rich guy who is being sued in civil court for fraud. If trump wins, maybe...

Brilliant GOP Strategy

I just saw saw a TownHall plan that is brilliant. A Rubio / Kasich ticket secures both Florida and Ohio in the general. (I know trump is beating rubio in the Florida polls right now, but that can be turned around). Cruz will be Scalia's replacement on...

Can Trump Win in November?

Prevailing wisdom all along has been that Marco Rubio has the best chance of beating hillbillary in November. But many voters who understand that have voted (or plan to vote) for trump, anyway. There are some things to love about trump and there are a...

Electability

Entrance polling in the South Carolina primary showed that more than half of voters thought Marco Rubio had the bast chance to beat hillbillary. But only about a fourth of voters felt that was very important. In previous primaries, electability ranked...

Thought for Thursday

Thought for Thursday: Every presidential candidate should release his/her tax records by the end of the week. If there are problems or surprises, we should know about them before Super Tuesday.  

Don't Blame the Establishment

So, you trump supporters are mad at the GOP establishment. Who do you think elected the establishment politicians you despise so much? You did. You bitch and moan about the establishment, but you keep electing establishment politicians to congress....

Rebels Without a Prez

Polling indicates that a majority of republican voters think marco rubio has a much better chance of beating clinton than does donald trump. But less than a fourth of them think that's important. They understand that trump will probably lose in...

Marco Rubio

Our federal government isn't perfect. Every once in a while a decent, honest person gets elected. I think Rubio is one of those. A lot of republicans don't like him because he is considered an "establishment" candidate. They are fed up with...

Republicans Will Dump Trump or Elect Clinton

Here's why. If you paid attention to the election coverage, you already know much of this. If you didn't, you aren't reading this. But I'll repeat the obvious just to set the table for what I have to say.   Trump voters are mostly repubs who are...

Relax

When you don't have anything to worry about, it doesn't mean you have nothing to worry about. It just means that whatever bad thing is about to happen will be a surprise.   Or, to put it another way: Sometimes bad things happen to good people,...

Thought for Thursday

A few nights ago, it was unusually warm for early February, so I enjoyed spending a few minutes gazing up at the stars. And I wondered, will mankind ever find signs of intelligent life on facebook?

What's the Answer, Voters?

What is the best US policy regarding illegal aliens now living in our nation?   A few republicans favor the Gang-of-Eight approach, granting amnesty to illegals already here, believing (or hoping) that that would make republicans...
